In the first lockdown I painted quite a few skyline watercolours and recently I had a discussion which has resulted in the creation of two more watercolours with sunsets and the skyline.
I really do enjoy these type of watercolours which are 45 by 19 cms in size to try to get the panorama of the cities.
So here they are and as we start to see the easing of our UK lockdown we may even be able to think more about some travel once again.
Firstly Singapore which is continually changing and is such a terrific place to visit.
I recall that we ate on the top of the Marina Bay Sands building, the one that looks like a ship on three 57 storey towers. Quite an experience.

Just for fun last week I had a look through some photos of the Great Wall of China which we visited in 2007, how time flies.
We had such a wonderful time there with some great US friends and also managed to go to see the Terracotta Warriors at Xian and visit Shanghai too.
Surprisingly I hadn’t sketched the Great Wall when we were there so I decided to paint two pen and was watercolours last week.
So here they are, they are both about 27 by 24 cms
I been watching a great series on TV , Asian Rail Journeys by Michael Portillo.
They are all excellent and remind us a lot of visits to a number of great places in SE Asia.
Yesterday I watched an episode on Singapore and reminisced about our last visit there and dinner on the roof of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel towers.
So the programme and my photos gave me the idea of yet another “Skyline Watercolour”, this time of the view across from on side of the Marina Bay to the high rise buildings opposite.
Singapore is a great City to visit with so many things to see and do, and so, now stuck here at home it is back on our future travel list!
Anyway I hope you like this watercolour which is 18 inches by 7 and not entirely monochrome this time.
Keep well and stay safe.
